BBC to hold an inquiry
AN “experienced HR expert” will head up an inquiry into how complaints of harassment by a former Kenilworth reporter were handled.
Former BBC broadcaster Russell Joslin, died on October 22. But before his death he reportedly complained of sexual harassment by a female colleague, and told friends that these complaints were repeatedly ignored by BBC bosses.
The corporation has now appointed consultant Lesley Granger to head an externally led inquiry into the matter.
In a statement, the BBC said she was “an experienced expert in human resources issues” who has worked as a consultant and executive coach over the last four years.
Her report will be published “subject to any material that has to be redacted for data protection reasons”.
Warwickshire Police is looking into the case as a matter of routine.
